Its San Diego Comic Con time- that wretched hive of scum and villainy- and you know what that means? Tat! And lots of it! But in the midst of all that are a few items worth queuing behind a Klingon with poor hygiene for.
Bif Bang Pow! have announced the wares that they’ll be putting on show at the Entertainment Earth booth #2343 and it seems that if it has to have at least one point of articulation; it had better be a bobbling head.
In there entire range- from Doctor Who to Dexter via The Twilight Zone– chances are that if it has a head, it’ll bobble.
Something that doesn’t have a head is the TARDIS but that hasn’t stopped them from releasing the resin Comic-Con exclusive TARDIS bobble head – a Tom Baker era TARDIS which stands about 6 3/4-inches tall on a themed base and wobbles to the dematerialising sounds of time travel which will set you back $22.
More promising is the near 9 inch Doctor Who TARDIS Tin Tote – a metallic lunch box in the shape of the TARDIS that you wouldn’t want near your lunch which will set you back $15. Both items are limited to 3000 units.
However this has been mere foreplay (if your foreplay does include bobble heads and tin lunch boxes then you might want to question your life choices) when compared to the Fourth Doctor & Sontaran Field-Major Styre from The Sontaran Experiment.
Each stands at eight inches tall, come with full articulation and retro 70’s style fabric and are available at both the San Diego and New York Comic Cons with each again limited to 3000 units.
Both items are available for pre-order at $39.99 each with the Fourth Doctor set shipping from August 2011 and the Cyber Leader giving chase in November 2011.
The TARDIS bobble head is available to pre-order in November 2011 for $21.99 with the TARDIS Lunch Box coming in August 2011 for $12.99
